Can the tenant make alterations to the property?

I am a tenant of a commercial property and I am interested in making some alterations to the property. I understand that I will need the landlord's permission to make these changes, but I am unsure of what the landlord's policy is regarding tenant alterations and what the legal implications of making such changes might be. I am looking for clarification on the tenant's rights and obligations when making alterations to a commercial lease agreement.

Hello! There should be an alterations clause in your lease that speaks to what is or isn't allowed in your space. Your safest bet is to have your landlord review and sign a letter of consent for more substantial improvements (beyond paint, mounting items, etc.)
